of jobs. >> i would appreciate that. with the cuts they're taking in the defense part of the budget, i believe we can find additional savings. i wanted to ask -- as i understand it, there is nearly 270 bases in germany 65 years after world war two ended. i want to know if the administration has conducted a savings estimate on closing these bases? they probably no longer serve a strategic value and of some of them do, i would question if whether 200 of them do. >> these are the kinds of questions the department and its needs to ask, not just about europe but about its operations everywhere. what we need for our current and future defense and what can we live without? i cannot prejudge the answer to this question by putting in this budget the first to bring in the department of defense backed into the normal budget trade- offs where we say no real growth, that is a cut in terms of what you can buy and it means you have to start doing less things, that's a step in the direction of asking a lot of very hard questions. >> i wanted to thank you for your comments earlier. being in california,
't necessarily make him a good candidate for secretary of defense, i will tell you who thinks that makes him a good candidate for secretary of defense, the men and women in the armed forces of the united states and their parents who know that this is a guy who will be very careful about putting their lives at risk, 'cause he put his life at risk. he know what is war is and he will fight a wars if the's necessary but a guy that will do it with great deliberation and care. beyond that he went back to nebraska, ran for senate. became a senator. said he would only serve two terms. only served two terms. and when he was elected the second time, he was elected with 83% of the vote. this is a guy respected by his fellow citizens of nebraska. served here for a total of 12 years. and what did he do when he left the senate? he came became an ac testimony knick georgetown, school of foreign service, teaching the new leaders. he also has been co-chairman of the president's intelligence advisory board. he is alsos on the defense policy board. this is a gentleman who knows all of these issues in depth. he

"washington journal" was next. >> good morning here in washington on the sunday morning. rehearsals underway later today for the inaugural ceremony. it will officially get underway in eight days. it is sunday, january 13. the house returns this week. the senate returns after the inauguration. converse tries to figure out what to do on the issue of spending and the national debt. we want to get your comments on a proposal put forth by senate democrats to bypass congress, allowing the president to raise the debt ceiling. it also removes the debate on section four of the 14th amendment. we will focus on all of this this sunday morning. it was a call. numbers at the bottom of your screen. we also want you to join us online on twitter and facebook or send us an e-mail. we will get your calls and comments in just a moment. our question, whether or not they residents can -- president can't bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. she is preparing for his inaugural address. the presid
they will be bruising. none more than the hearing before the senate armed services committee over the new defense secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early as this week. the white house has mounted a vigorous defense. hagel says his record on iran, gays and the military has been distorted. members of the armed services committee will question hagel. but today on "face the nation," senator john mccain called hagel a friend, though he has questions and is annoyed at how the white house has handled the nomination. >> usually wprevious presidents, republican and democrat, when they are considering nominations, they call in the other side and the key members on the other party and say, hey, i am thinking about nominating mr. "x," what do you think about it? there has been none of that. >> reporter: the former secretary of the joint chiefings and colin powell gave his backing to hagel, even though he was one of the largest critics of the war in iraq, a war that powell helped to sell to the american people. he tried to stop the surge, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since
of defense. we have a clash you will want to watch. >>> then the relationship between the united states and russia keeps getting worse, whose fault is it? moscow or washington? a debate. also, the next fight in washington will be over the debt ceiling. can president obama end this craziness and bypass congress altogether? we'll talk about the out of the box solutions and whether they would work. >>> and, finally, this is the signature of the man who might be the next treasury secretary. we'll look back through history to see if there's any loopy president. speaking of secretaries of the treasury three former holders of the office and many other statesmen and women offering advice to the president on a new gps special tonight "memo to the president, road map for a second term." tonight at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> first, here's my take. chuck hagel's nomination as america's next secretary of defense has drawn fire from people who say he's outside of the main stream. in fact, he's a pretty straight forward, traditional republican on most issues with a reluctance to
others, jodi arias through her attorney settles on is self-defense. >> it was travis of it continual abuse. >> geraldo: but if jodi killed travis because she feared otherwise he would kill her why did she tell the cock and bull story to inside edition. in. >> two people took travis' life. two monsters. >> you did not kill travis? >> i have never even shot a gun. >> geraldo: the second week reveals that she lived in a web of lies even about where she work. >> she told me she he worked at magglio ritaville and she cut her. >>> is there a business establishment, a bar or restaurant by the name of margaritaville? >> no, sir. >> geraldo: her commitment to the professed mormon faith is also challenged by one-time love interest ryan byrnes who questioned jodi about the nature of her continuing relationship with the victim. >> i found out that they had had sex together. >> geraldo: according to ryan's testimony, jodi told him that she and travis broke up earlier because travis was unfaithful and treated jodi poor early. >> seemed like the reason they broke up is because they didn't trust eac
security interests. in 2008, accordingly, the department of defense obligated over $70 million to construct an afghan national army garrison there that would house 1800 national afghan army troops and their advisers. this is a multi-building garrison. it was supposed to be completed in june of 2009. in april 2010, it still was not completed. to make matters worse, the construction had been completed -- that had been completed had major problems. roofs were sagging or collapsing because the contractor had used improper welding and soldering techniques. worse yet, the site was constructed on unstable soil. because the contractor had not adequately prepared the site and stabilize the soil and constructed proper foundation, the buildings were collapsing. they were literally sinking into the ground, causing structural failure and making them unusable. in 2010 we inspected the site. we found problems and told the defense department to fix it. they promised to do so. however, last year we returned and we found a site in deplorable condition. although some structures had been fixed, the underlying
as defense attorneys argued mubarak didn't know about the killings. no date has been set for a retrial several others will be on part of that trial who were awe quitted in the previous trials. going forward mubarak will be pending a review. he's facing other corruption charges. it is likely he will stay in jail for the significant and foreseeable future. mubarak was reportedly ill. there are responconstant reports ill and that he has fallen and broken ribs. it is not clear whether or not he will be stuck in his house because of medical condition. this going forward this will be a retrial turning in real problems for egypt going forward. it has been a violent and very spo sort of chaotic scene in egypt the past few years since mubarak stepped down. it isn't clear what will happen with the retrial being demanded by the court. a lot of egyptians felt hmubara should have been given the death penalty for his roles in ordering the deaths and crack down on the protestors. of course now there will be a retrial. nobody knows what will happen. it is possible we will see more protests or possible
for secretary of defense. that is going to be a proxy battle between what you might call the know 0-conservatives, the bush ii folks, mccain, lieberman, lindsey graham, and the others and what hagel stands for, john, is non- interventionist foreign policy. we don't go to war unless vital interests are at stake. we put our own country first. i think this is going to be the battle royal in the coming months. >> eleanor. >> nobody is a shoe-in with the republican party that fails to defeat president obama for reelection but still seems determined to make him a failed president but jacob lew is as close to a shoe-in as there can be. the only complaint you hear is that he hasn't spent enough time on wall street, and for a lot of democrats that's actually a positive attribute. so he will be confirmed. and i believe senator hagel will also be confirmed, although that's a bigger fight, and his remarks about israel that somehow he isn't tough enough on israel, his objection to sanctions was that they were unilateral. he now supports the current sanctions. he is certainly not antiisrael. thos
hagel's nomination for defense secretary topped today's sunday talks. >> overall temperment and is he suited to run a department or big agency like the pentagon. >> whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunderer since the vietnam war, that clearly is not -- that is not correct. in fact, it is bizarre. why would he oppose calling the iranian revolutionary guard a terrorist organization? >> peter alexander is at the white house where that nomination was announced. good afternoon to you. what is the president's strategy for dealing with these sorts of road blocks from republicans ahead of hagel's hearing? >> reporter: it is clear that the administration, the white house, specifically stands behind chuck hagel and is waiting for hearings to take place and they say it is only at that time that they will see exactly how chuck hagel will react to pushback. colin powell referred to hagel as having a diminished public record. he will be as secretary of defense the first grunt as it were ever to serve as secretary of defense and powell said because he put his own life at risk
in research and defense. basic research has been enhanced by what we do at the department of energy. what has made us the leaders in innovation is that the technology that is discovered in places where frankly those rules should be shared by all of us, it is then handed off to a private sector with the capacity to implement it more effectively than any other in the world. >> i want to make sure that every member gets a chance. >> appreciate your comments. >> thank you, mr. chairman. welcome, director. you propose to increase federal civilian employment by 22,400 people in the coming fiscal year. seriously? we want to increase the number of federal employees now? >> there are a lot of agencies going down where the increase is very much concentrated in areas where there are new missions where there are shared concerns. if we put in place new screening procedures and machinery to make sure that no one gets on an airplane with explosives, we will need to have the inspectors there to run the machines to know what is in them. the increases are very heavily in areas where there are new missions bein
srepublican senator chuck hagel to head the department of defense has generated heat and light. zbigniew brzezinski, general john johns, brent scowcroft, as well as colin powell and former defense secretary bob gates. the senate has rejected only nine cabinet nominees to will chuck hagel be the 10th? >> i don't think so. i thought he would have an easier time that he has, but when all is said and done, there are lots of people from the bush administration, high-visibility people -- npr on friday morning , one spoke extreme in the -- extremely well of hagel. but the way that republicans are approaching cabinet appointments at the moment is different from what we've seen and the past. i am not sure whether it is a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing, and they will have their day in the sun, or whether they are serious about this. if they are, then harry reid has a proposal to change the rules and the senate and it might -- there are a few democrats who might have reservations about it. >> will take a week confirmed, evan -- chuck hagel be confirmed, evan? >> i think he will. he has a
this year. james: we talked last week about how many plays that baltimore defense played. let's go to their locker room. >> we had them right where we wanted them. right where we wanted them. this is from the owner. he texted during the game. he has never done that before. he said i have never texted you during a game. we are down 35-28. this is when we were down 35-28. i never texted you during the game. we are down 35-28 and i think it is the best game i have ever seen us in the playoffs since 2000. that is before we took the lead. win or lose, i am so proud of the team and proud of you. james: coach quick thought. bill: i think this game is the heart and soul of that team, ray lewis. they are on this mission right now. you saw them come together. you know they are the underdogs anywhere they go. as long as joe flacco plays mistake free, ray rice running. that defense is playing very solid, mistake-free play. dan: they overcame two kick returns for touchdowns, that is hard to overcome, especially on the road. joe flacco making big plays down the

deserves and they were heard scream, long live justice. defense lawyers argued that mubarak didn't know about the killings and he didn't direct the killings on protestors two years ago. the judge agreed that mubarak and former chief of security will be re-tried along with several others who were part of the government that were acquitted during the first trial. as of now, there has not been a trial set but mubarak remains in jail temporarily and facing charges of corruption. it was reported that he was on deathbed and health dleipg. there were reports he had fallen and broken ribs but we don't know what health he is right now. it is apparently declining. over the last two years we've seen a lot of turmoil and violence and a lot of chaos in egypt and across egypt. whether or not this will trigger new rounds of protests isn't clear, but certainly illicit do little to help stabilize this country going forward. >> gregg: thank you. >> arthel: it's been three years since the devastating earthquake hit the island of haiti killing more than 300,000 people. our own greta van susteren traveled t

that they have under the second amendment and who are involved in the shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense and we think that they will be heard. >> and when you look at the power, one of the things that you said when you came in is that our number one political priority is to defeat the president for a second term, and that didn't happen. you also lost some high profile senate races that you invested in. what does that say about the power -- because there are a lot of people out there who say, look, this has changed, that newtown has changed public sentiment, and it has changed the mood on capitol hill, and yet you think that the nra has the power to block this? >> the nra doesn't have the power, be but those americans who believe in the second amendment do. the races that were decided this year, weren't decided on the second amendment issues as you well know and not discussed. the president discussed he would never take your rifle or sidearm and not interfere with your second amendment right, and in those races where there is a clear choice and let me give you an example. we were very inv

in shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense and we think they are going to be hurt. >> that is the president of the nra. we want to see what you think about that issue. our next caller is jennifer from riley, kansas. >> i just want to say that freedom is our right and the government has been taking away all our rights. somebody said earlier, teachers and carrying tasters. i think that is a great idea. legal guns are here and more legal guns there are, the better chance we have to protect ourselves. at least like a team of teachers at all carry guns at the school so that we don't have to make extra budget for it or anything. i think it should be allowed to have guns. we also need to give gun safety. we give training class is to children starting very young. they are dangerous unless they are used properly. >> my thoughts at is it is the mental health. for good about the nra and the guns and all that, they are not going to vote that out. it is too much money. we should ask that an ira for help with money toward mental health. that would help solve the problem, but the
defensive backs manhandled the green bay receivers. jammed them at the line. none of them got off. that's the key to the game. they have to do the same thing. rogers is a future hall of fame quarterback. they did an incredible job intimidating these guys early. they weren't that productive. that's the recipe to beating green bay. >> down the far sideline. and the 49ers are goning to get out of here with a win. how much that they have been through games like this before. the packer game is one. the game in new england was a similar one. does it help they've had those games this year. the packer defense was better than the patriots secondary. clay mathews and the pass rush, it's a trevor defense -- tougher defense. >> i think in the back of their minds they are saying we've beat aaron rodgers on the road, we've beaten tom brady on the road. we've beaten drew brees on the road. we should be able too beat one of those guy guys at home. that will do it. we hope to see you next week for the nfc championship game. thanks for being with us on 49ers total access. wrap . >>> complete bay ar
chuck hagel's resume that set with what he wants to do with defense. cutting defense spending, that sort of thing. it makes sense so he's going to stick with his pick. chris: is hagel, barack obama with a war record, is he really the guy that -- that obama has been hiding, more liberal on foreign policy? >> i believe that's right and he wouldn't have picked him in the second term unless he thought they were in sync on the larger philosophy of what they want. for the american force in the world. chris: a real statement picking this guy? >> he also thought he would give him cover on the necessary defense reductions. he's a republican. therefore, he helps them with that. that's pretty much shot. chuck hagel is no longer seen as a republican. he's seen as a -- an outliar. chris: let's talk about guns. this is tough. guns. can he get something? can he get something big? >> you're seeing that argument sort of play out right now in the white house. with -- looks at whether they will push for that. full ban on assault weapons instead of going after the magazines to -- or the clips. chris: and wi
concern. in fact, our defense minister is in town today at the pentagon, discussing some of these issues. he has come with a detailed list of the enablers the afghan national army needs, including, as you mentioned, long-range artillery and intelligence- gathering capabilities. fixed-wing and rotary aircraft for transportation. we have been completely dependent for all of these things on nato and our other friends and allies. again, a lot of these equipments are not as expensive as conducting these operations with nato in afghanistan. if there is a political will, it is doable. the same thing as far as the salaries of the afghan national army and police. yes, it is a significant number, considering the afghan economy. or the withdrawal of each international troops from afghanistan, we can sustain 80 afghan national army soldiers on the ground, if there is a willingness to continue with this mission. as you mentioned, to come with a more reasonable definition of success in afghanistan, which has come up to now, then diminished, what it means to succeed here in afghanistan. >> the end of t
with the presidential level. lori: will this be, pounded with the confirmation of the new secretary of defense? >> yes. that will be an interesting confirmation hearing. lori: would d be riprocated you had a vote? to make i think the president showed deference with his nomination to the cabinet and senior administration but that has not been the case in a long time. that is the wrong way to approach these things. lori: we appreciate your analysis. ambassador john bolton. much more with afghanistan coming up with the "a team". call of duty, and mortal kombat, are these violent video games poisoning the lori: john lonski is here with the look of the market's and today's unexpected widening of the trade gap. look at what happened on wall street. it was flat not even with the bad news of a the trade gap in november. the dow nasdaq entire but the recipe and change. volume over 3 billion shares. for the week the s&p raised o when 4% but the nasdaq was zero point* 8%. wells fargo kicked off earnings and disappointed by announcing a narrower margin. bank of america and jpmorgan and citigroup will report next
fights brewing in washington today. including gun control, the confirmation of chuck hagel at defense and the looming and unpleasant sequel to the fiscal cliff. here, the host of abc's "this week," george stephanopoulos who knows everything and can see the future too. george, let's talk about gun control. the vice president will submit his proposal for post-newtown gun control on tuesday we believe. it seems to be coalescing around cracking down on high-capacity magazines and also beefing up background checks on gun buyers. can the administration muscle those two things through? >> the white house also says they will continue to push the assault weapons ban but they know they won't get it through. lots of opposition to that. they do believe they can create a consensus particularly around this idea of background checks, universal background checks and the nra not backing down yet, though, which is also why the white house will look at executive orders they can act on on their own. tightening enforcement or gun laws. more data sharing for where sales are coming from and you see people l
